Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of piano lessons?
Because playing piano requires learning both the treble and bass clefs, piano is the perfect foundational instrument for establishing musical literacy for all of one’s life. Learning piano helps students become well-rounded individuals who enjoy playing music. In addition, the character of discipline and perseverance, which are developed through practicing piano, are applicable in other areas of a student’s life.
Additional benefits include:
- improved academic skills
- development of physical skills
- refines discipline and patience
- boosts self-esteem
What ages do you teach?
We offer piano lessons to students ages 3 1/2 through adult. We enjoy introducing the building blocks of music to very young children as well as guiding and encouraging older students in their musical study.
What music experience do you offer?
At Kristen’s piano studio we enjoy offering many opportunities to my students. We often prepare students for ADMTA theory tests, piano festivals, and Suzuki workshops. All our students enjoy performing in a studio recital each semester.
Will Kristen’s Piano Studio supply the instrument?
Students must have an instrument available for practice between their lessons. An acoustic piano is preferable over an electric piano or keyboard. Need a piano? Please contact us and I would be happy to assist you.
